‘Bringing it all together’

What an amazing week already. We have been hearing some lovely stories of kindness and generosity, with neighbours sharing food, calling each other to check in how they are doing and helping out in whatever way they can.

We too have been busy helping with various things including some shopping. A few of them had some extra goodies in their bags on Wednesday. We had some fresh rosemary, thyme and sage from the Caring Together allotment and some rhubarb from another. Ben kindly dropped them off Wednesday morning, all nicely bagged up and John had brought the rhubarb in the day before. I was also able to drop off a few snack boxes from Jet2 as well.

“Thank you for shopping for my fresh vegetables and delivering them, I really appreciate it and all the help and support from Caring Together. A huge thank you for the snack box and herbs too. All are much appreciated and needed” Caring Together member

And another of our members and volunteer Myrna also helped with delivering a few of the snack boxes in her street. It was for those self isolating that she knows whilst getting her daily exercise. She has also made some lovely crumbles with the rhubarb we dropped off. She is going to drop them off at her neighbours door. We are pleased so many are getting to benefit from the fresh produce.

Thank you to everyone yet again for making this all possible, the ripple effects of your kindness, whilst keeping safe, is heartwarming.
